Gramin Vikas Vigyan Samiti (GRAVIS), Rajasthan
2020 Covid-19 Relief Grant: $2000
2021 Covid-19 Relief Grant: $2500
In 2020, during the first COVID wave, GRAVIS was able to use PPI’s grant to help 150 families of unemployed stone mine workers and families with disabled and women-headed households. GRAVIS distributed 70 relief kits in Gagadi village of Osian block and 80 kits in Soorsagar mines of Mondore block, on the outskirts of Jodhpur district. The relief kits contained dry rations to support a family of 6 to 7 people for 20 days. GRAVIS is coordinating their relief work with the sub-divisional magistrate and the Gram Panchayat to avoid overlap with the government’s relief distribution effort.
The report on 2021 relief work is awaited.
